A smile can say a lot about someone. Successful, happy people who exude a lot of confidence tend to smile a lot. Also, a smile is the first thing a person notices about you.

Here at Brighton Family Dental, we’ll give your kids a reason to smile. We want to help keep your kids’ grins healthy and bright, and we know you want the same. What if we told you there is another reason to get your kids to show off those pearly whites?

A recent study at DePauw University shows how intensely people smile in childhood photographs may predict their adult marriage success.

According to the research, people whose smiles were weakest in childhood snapshots were more likely to get divorced later in life.  Among the weakest smilers in college photographs, 1 in 4 ended up divorcing, compared to 1 in 20 of those with the boldest smiles.

It is thought that one’s tendency to smile reflects his or her underlying emotional disposition, which makes sense. We smile more when we are happy, and that happiness often impacts every part of life, including marriage.

As family dentists, we know that you want the best for your kids. That’s why you chose us to be your family’s dental care provider. We want to keep your kids’ mouths healthy so that they feel confident about flashing a big, toothy grin. Apparently, the results will pay off now and later.

We would love to see you in our office! If you and the kiddos are due for dental checkups and cleanings, please make an appointment to come in and see us.
